For the third consecutive year, the city of Metz will meet you for the festival of Digital Arts called Constellations. From June 20 to September 7, visitors can stroll through the city at the pace of the three courses offered: Digital Stones, Street Art and Art and Gardens. The Pierres Numériques course combines art and technology and invites the public on a nocturnal walk to discover the architectural and historical heritage of Metz between sound and light. Between installations and projections, a guaranteed immersion in the worlds that define the artists who designed them. Here are some works that can punctuate your journey.
On the imposing Cathedral Saint-Etienne a mapping entitled Morphosis imagined by Vincent Masson, will highlight the polymorphic character of the building. With the help of an animated and musical narration, the creation will return to the history of the building and the events that have marked the history of the city. The cathedral will be the support of these stories.
Romain Tardy has invested the New Temple to offer his creation of sound and light In Vivam Memoriam. It puts us at the heart of an event: the celebration of the end of the digital age and its way of life. Religious services will continue to be celebrated in this Protestant temple of the twentieth century.
Water is a very important element in the city of Metz, which is crossed by the Moselle. Joanie Lemercier chose to present her work Constellations on a screen of fine drops of water. Projections of lights create three-dimensional images that transport us to the rhythm of music through the cosmos by traversing planets and stars. The magic of the elements then operates.
St. Vincent Basilica has been a desacralized monument since 2012. The artist Guillaume Marmin and the TETRO agency have chosen to present their work for 1,3 seconde. The title of this creation is the time the light takes to travel between the Earth and the Moon. This duration is also the pulse of the installation, which proposes to explore the links between light time and space. The luminous and sound compositions offer a new dimension to the building.
Each of these installations and creations and many others will transport you in a space time never explored until September 7th in Metz. With 950,000 visitors at the second edition, the Constellations of Metz are now positioned as the artistic festival of the summer to discover absolutely.
